The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Kees Cook of Ubuntu security found a flaw in how poppler prior to
version 0.6 displayed malformed fonts embedded in PDF files. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause
applications using poppler to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary
code when opened (CVE-2008-1693).
This vulnerability also affected KOffice, so the updated packages have
been patched to correct this issue.
A file conflicts existed between one of the library packages and the
koffice-devel package which prevented successful upgrades if
koffice-devel was previously installed. This update removes the
conflicting file from koffice-devel.
Update the affected packages.
